    44mm head tube coming for nimble 9?

    anyone know if canfield is planning to update the nimble 9 with a 44 head tube?......and when these might trickle out?

    I'd love to be able to use my tapered fork, and the market is going this way overall- figure its just a matter of time, right?

    Sure would hope so that it happens on the next version. Similar bikes like the Kona Unit is coming with a 44mm headtube for 2013.

    +1 for me on the 44mm headtube.
    It's a sweet frame, and being able to use the newest forks out there on the bike would be great.

    While I doubt I'll ever own a nimble, 44mm head tube seems like a no-brainer for most every bike I can think of. I can't really think of a reason why you'd want a 41/1-1//8 head tube these days.

    Here's a reason-

    1 lbs more frame weight.

    Just for the headtube being 44? That seems excessive, no?
